Get inspired by the talk of Jonathan Harris at the 2007 Pop! Tech event – educative and entertaining, amusing and touching at the same time. Jonathan is the creator of inspiring and playful applications like “We Feel Fine” or “I Want You To Want Me“.
It’s now two years since Jonathan Harris’ last talk at Pop! Tech but the presentation and the audience interaction at the end of his talk are still a great inspiration. If you haven’t come across Jonathan and his work, be sure to check out his website over at number27.org.
If you are already familiar with some of his works I recommend having a look at his newest project sptnk.org. He realized it in collaboration with New York based Sputnik Inc, an organization that documents contemporary culture through intimate video interviews with hundreds of leading thinkers in the arts, sciences and technology, covering a wide range of topic.
The central premise of Sputnik Observatory is that everything is connected to everything else, and that topics and ideas that may seem fringe and even heretical to the mainstream world are in fact being investigated by leading thinkers working in fields as diverse as quantum physics, mathematics, neuroscience, biology, economics, architecture, digital art, video games, computer science and music. Sputnik is dedicated to bringing these crucial ideas from the fringes of thought out into the limelight, so that the world can begin to understand them.
